  1. “HORN†In On Franchise / Business Ownership …a monthly post with blurbs, links, and other words-of-wisdom regarding self-employment; career transition; and franchise / business ownership; as well as information for business owners who may be interested in franchising their business. July 2015 ENTREPRENEURSHIP Is Living A Few Years Of Your Life Like Most People Won’t, So That You Can Spend The Rest Of Your Life Like Most People Can’t. -Unknown- The New Corporate Alchemy... ...Gold Watches To Pink Slips By Frank Agin, AmSpirit Business Connections There once was a nobler time. You studied hard. From there you learned a trade or earned a degree. Which you could parlay into that first job. It wasn't just a job, however. It was the beginning of a career. Sure, you started at the bottom, but there was plenty of opportunity to work your way up. One rung at a time you climbed the corporate ladder. Associate. Senior Associate. Supervisor. Manager. Assistant V.P. In addition, the environment was positive. Pay raises were always respectable. Time off was seldom an issue. Moreover, by working diligently from nine to five during the week, the evenings and weekends were yours. After 40-or-so years of this, you had done your time. Surrounded by admiring co-workers, your service to "the company" was celebrated. Several heartfelt speeches from people who considered you a friend. A big cake. And a gold watch. Finally, an appreciative higher-up, walked you to your car and sincerely told you, "Be well ... See you around ... Don't be a stranger." From here, you settled into retirement. Drawing on a well-funded pension, social security, and health coverage, you did not have a care in the world. It was a nobler time. That nobler time, however, is not now. Somewhere along the way, the world changed. No one is to blame. It just did. Whatever the case, the change was not to your benefit. No longer is a degree or a trade good enough to steer you clear of a dead-end job. You might need additional certification or a Masters, if you are lucky enough not to have to start over because technology made your "stock in trade" obsolete. Even when you find that job with career potential, you are not set. Wage freezes and shrinking benefits are now the norm. Moreover, you seem to be permanently stuck in a no-advancement mode. Any hope of change is the result of a lateral move, either internally or to another company. While the overall compensation and opportunity dwindles, the work doesn't. Even starting work at 0-Dark-30 does not immunize you from having to work into the evening and over the weekend. As such, you sacrifice time with friends, family, or whatever. Moreover, no matter how hard you work (or little you accept) the whispers persist. From behind closed doors in offices far away, these voices are from higher-ups you have never met. Pouring over nameless and faceless numbers they ponder as to whether "the company" can replace you with someone or something less expensive. While today that answer may be "NO," it won't always be. One day, that "pondering" will not come out in your favor. In an era of downsizing, off-shoring, and automation, it is no longer a question of "If" but "When." At that point, an almost stranger abruptly escorts you to the door. There is no celebration. There is no cake. There is no explanation other than, "Your services are no longer necessary." Just like that in a perverse sort of alchemy, "corporate America" has transformed your gold watch into a “pink slip†and nothing more. This is the new corporate reality, like it or not. While you have little control over it, you have options to avoid it. One is becoming your own boss and acquiring your own piece of the American dream. ******************************************************************************************************* Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving.†Are you allowing your professional life to wander aimlessly, or stand still? Do you dislike your corporate job, but don’t know how to find your real niche in life? Rapidly the World is changing before our eyes. Consistent pay raises have given way to ongoing wage freezes, or minimal increases. The notion of lifetime employment is being replaced by downsizing, outsourcing, and off-shoring. It is no secret: to build wealth in America you need to build a business. To ensure success, however, you are best to not go it alone, which is where the notion of franchising comes in. We are now in the era of the franchise. Did you know that that 90%+ of all franchises opened during the past five (5) years are still open? With what degree of certainty can you forecast that you will still have your job in five (5) years? Franchises are everywhere today. Even during tight economic conditions, consumers must still buy goods and services. As the economy continues to improve and expand, businesses in operation today, will have a golden opportunity to increase their market share. In fact, financial experts believe that franchising is the “wave of the futureâ€. During the next 10 years, franchises could comprise over 50% of the retail and service sectors. This tremendous growth should be expected based on the underlying concept-Franchises offer aspiring business owners the greatest potential for success, with the least amount of risk. Franchises will provide thousands of individuals the opportunity to realize their dream of successful business ownership and financial independence. Within both the U.S. and world economies, franchising is continuing to evolve. This evolution will create even greater avenues for wealth accumulation among both franchisees and franchisors. The existing franchise systems will become more successful and continue to grow, while new franchises will be developed and introduced to the market. WASHINGTON, Jan. 7, 2015 – Franchise businesses are expected to grow and create more jobs at a faster pace than the rest of the economy in 2015 for the fifth consecutive year, according to The Franchise Business Economic Outlook: 2015 released today by the International Franchise Association (IFA) Educational Foundation and IHS Economics. "Franchising is an American success story. Independently-owned and operated local franchise businesses are growing faster, creating more jobs at a quicker pace and producing higher sales growth than other businesses. Franchising is a vital engine of economic expansion in the United States and 2015 looks to be another strong year for franchise businesses," said IFA President & CEO Steve Caldeira. Make no mistake, corporate loyalty is a one-way street. And, job security behind the corporate curtain is a myth. So, don't just change your curtains...change your view.
